SDX: Inspire - Women in Leadership
Women in leadership isn’t a zero-sum game.

Empowerment for women in the workforce is in vogue. Finally. So how can we support each other in getting a seat at the leadership table?  And what should you do if you don’t feel supported by those around you? Hosted by Mirum’s Julie Koepsell, this panel will discuss what real empowerment looks like in practice, and will be joined by Gritty founder, Sarah Panis; Cherry Park, Sr. Director, Marketing, Qualcomm; and Laura Huston, Principal Product Designer at Intuit.

About the speakers:

Moderator: Julie Koepsell, Managing Director, Mirum Minneapolis and Forbes Contributor

I have spent the last twenty years in client services working my way up the ranks of agencies large and small. Today I manage the Minneapolis team of a global digital agency. Experience has afforded me a lot. I have worked with great teams and extremely dysfunctional teams. I have experienced exhilarating agency highs and crushing lows. Through it all, I have met amazing people, become well versed on failure and I have learned more about myself and the dynamics of different personalities than I ever expected. I’m a passionate and driven team member, leader, woman, mother who brings all of that to work and home again. I believe the only way to be your best self is to be your whole self.

Laura Huston, Principal Product Designer, Intuit

I’ve been in the field of design for the last 15 years working at agencies, in-house, and as a freelancer. Today, I’m a Principal Product Designer at Intuit working on new products in the personal finance space.I’ve also started a couple of my own small businesses and am passionate about bringing that entrepreneurial spirit, along with the lessons that I’ve learned, into my current work. Being a designer has given me a great set of tools for creative problem solving and has shaped the way I approach much of life. I’m always excited to share those insights, philosophize, or jam on new ideas, especially over a strong cup of coffee.
